Osip Emmanuilovich Braz (1873-1936)

He graduated from the Odessa Art School (1890), and studied under Sandor Kholloshi in Munich (1891-94) and under Ilya Repin in the Academy of Arts (1895-96).  In 1914, Braz was made an academic by the Academy of Arts.  He lived in St. Petersburg from 1895.  He created a series of vivid portraits of Russian painters: Martynova E.M. (1896, the State Tretyakov Gallery), A.P. Sokolov (1898, the State Russian Museum), I.Y. Ginzburg (1890s, the State Russian Museum) et al. Pavel Tretyakov commissioned him to paint the portrait of Anton Chekhov (1897-98, the State Tretyakov Gallery.  He painted still lifes in the manner of "small Dutchmen" and impressionistic landscapes.

Since 1900, he participated in Mir Iskusstva (World of Art) exhibitions (a member of the committee and the treasurer).  In 1900-05, he taught in his studio (112 Moika River Embankment), and in 1902-04 at the Drawing School of the Artists Encouragement Fund.  He collected old masters' paintings and engaged in restoration.  In 1918 he was made scientific curator of the department of Dutch paintings in the Hermitage.  From 1920 he directed a painting studio in the Academy of Arts.

In 1924 he was arrested on political charges and put to the prison camp in the Solovets islands and later exiled to Novgorod.  He came back to Leningrad in 1926.  In 1928 he moved to France and traded antiquities.
